Day #14: Maude and I go on a road trip!

OK, I'll be honest....this is a puppet I made a while ago BUT I just did major repair to her AND she is accompanying me on a really awesome it counts. (See "Da Rulz" for more details.)

First, this roadtrip...I am off to the Pocosin Arts Cabin Fever Reliever XI. This is an artist retreat where you can take an intensive workshop in a medium of your choosing -- they have five choices this year. I am taking an intensive feltmaking workshop with Lisa Klakulak. I feel like I am off to camp! It's exciting to have time for me and a mini-vacation. Don't get me wrong, I totally LOVE my family...I just need a few days off!

Now for the puppet! Maude is a soft sculpture puppet that I made a few years ago. Her body is comprised of foam rubber covered with stretch terry. I styled the wig (I love doing that part) and had fun with her eyelashes, too. If you see me cruising down I-95, check out the passenger seat. I am totally going to put her there!

Eyelashes made from goose biots.


  1. I hope you and Maude have a fantastic time!

    I love my family too, but I can certainly relate to the needing of a break.

    Soak some up for me while you are there, please?
